    Hey Wil. Don't try the bludgeon tips for turkey hunting!! They don't have the shock power for a big bird like that. Your bludgeon tips will work great on small game like rabbits, squirrels, prarrie dogs and small birds,etc. To kill turkeys with a bow, the shot needs to be in the vitals or a head shot, if you are good enough. Turkeys are one tough critter to kill with a bow. Myself I like to use expandible broadheads that give me a large cutting diameter. Regular broadheads will work, but the cutting diameter should be large enough to cut the vitals on a less than adequate shot. The vitals on a turkey are about the size of a tennis ball.

    Hope this helps ya!!
